Abstract

In this book, Assman deepens his investigation, started with Das kulturelle Gedächtnis (München 1992) and developed with Moses der Ägypter (München 2000). He deals with topics such as: the “moralization of death”, i.e. the possibility – introduced by the monotheism – of defeating the death by means of a rightouse life; the distiction, in the realm of the phenomenology of religion, between “intrasystemic” and “extrasystemic” violence; the differentiation between biblical and evolutive monotheism; the separation of Herrschaft from Heil; the canonization of sacred texts, which – so to say – overturns the logic pattern of the textual history, where the normative significance is to be found in the starting phase; the “mnemohistorical” evaluation of the most violent OT texts, interpreted as a “symbolic representation of the Israelian pagan past”.
